GCSE Results 2017
When and how are the results distributed?
GCSE / IGCSE / FSMQ: Thursday, 24th August 2017: available to collect between 8.30am – 10.30am from St Alban’s Hall.
Students requiring a relative or friend to collect results on their behalf must send a signed letter of authorisation with the collector.
Examination results will be disclosed by telephone to overseas students only. Candidates may only telephone after 11.00am on 25th August.
Students who are unable to collect their results from College on the above dates will receive these by post to their home addresses.
What can I do if results are substantially different from what is anticipated?
It must be remembered that examinations can only measure performance on the day, and that candidates can do better or worse than anticipated for a variety of reasons.
It is possible to request an enquiry about result (EAR) whereby the awarding body arranges for the examination script to be re-marked. Details of the procedures and fees involved are available from the Examinations Officer and the process should be started as soon as possible after consultation with the Head of Department concerned. The deadline for submission of an EAR application is in mid-September for summer exams.
Please note that awarding bodies do not provide component marks and grade boundary information for individual candidates.
When do students receive certificates?
Year 11 candidates will receive their certificates during the Presentation Evening in the Michaelmas Term. Invitations to this event will be issued in due course.
Candidates from other year groups should note that certificates normally arrive in College by the end of October and may be collected from Reception.
Students are advised to ensure that the necessary arrangements are made to collect their certificates. The College is only obliged to retain certificates for a period of one year after which a fee in the region of £45.00 per certificate is payable to the Awarding Bodies.
